Research by the University of Texas Austin revealed that compounds found in a variety of foods — including red grapes, apple peels, various other fruits and the spice turmeric — can fight prostate cancer. While up to 142 natural compounds from food may have some benefits against prostate cancer, resveratrol, ursolic acid and curcumin seem to be the most effective. All three of these compounds works better in combination with any one of the others rather than alone, and all of them are completely safe and non-toxic.
- It has been found by a study that eating one apple a day, even the peel, could help prevent prostate cancer for older men.
- Some of the natural compounds that could be used against cancer by killing timorous cells thus halting it are apple peels, berries, red grapes and turmeric.
- Resveratrol, a compound that is found in food, has been found to be effective against cancer and they do this without resorting to surgery or chemotherapy.
“In addition, these compounds worked even better if they were taken together, which suggested synergistic effects.”
